MAOA Education and Research Fund
The continued ability of the MAOA to fund special speakers, traveling fellowships, multipurpose resident grants, physician in training awards, poster awards, and resident/fellow/new in practice orthopedist education grants to attend the annual meeting is due in large part to generous donations by MAOA members and nonmembers to the MAOA Education & Research Fund.

Partnering with MAOA through OREF
In addition to direct gifts to MAOA, donations can be given to OREF in 2 ways to benefit MAOA:

  1. Annual Campaign
    Donors contributing less than $1,000 to the OREF Annual Campaign can choose to designate up to 50% of their gift for the benefit of the MAOA Education and Research Fund with 50% directed to OREF. Annual Campaign gifts are those made in one year and are available to be spent immediately

  2. Annual Giving - Order of Merit Recognition
    The Order of Merit is a special recognition society of OREF. In any year, a donation of $1,000 or more to OREF qualifies the donor for the Order of Merit. The first $500 is a gift to OREF to help support its programs. Any of the remaining $500 or more can be designated to the MAOA Education & Research Fund. Click here to designate a portion of your contribution to OREF to the MAOA Education and Research Fund.
